Kind of a long story but,,,2 main reasons:

1. When I first bought my Disco it wasn't for wheelin'. I used to go camping w/ my kids almost every weekend. So the rack was very useful for hauling gear. Since then, over the past 2 years, I've been building up the Rover more for wheelin' and the rack has outlived it's utility. Without it, I look naked,,,, but have a lower COG and pick up fewer tree branches. Out here it's rocky trail running & rock crawling, so I'm better off w/out it, from a purely technical point of view. When I do haul gear, I can fit it in the rear anyway, as it's usually just me & the boys. (My wife's idea of camping is an RV,,,mine's about 1 step away from Ranger school...)

2. I just sold my house in the 'burbs. Moving into a condo & a more urban environment (plan is to get some land out in the middle of nowhere & have the condo during the week & the woods on the weekends,,will probably buy back east). So I need to fit into my parking garage as I can't leave it on the street.

So are you going to sell your lights?... hint hint hint ;) If you decide to get a house or land out this way be it in MA or RI I can get you a mortgage.

I'm selling 3 of 'em, but already have a buyer--sorry Dark :eek:
It depends on whether or not my co. opens up an operation back East, and where. If they don't,,,or if they put it in Southeast,,,we'll probably be looking at PA or VA.

I went to B.C. and am pretty familiar w/ New England,,, but MA prices are just too high. Especially now after the recent boom. Perhaps prices will come down a bit in the next few years (not to jinx your business!).

Actually the prices should come down. And that's great for my business, because then more people will be able to afford houses ;)

Man I LOVE Virginia,,,and WV, PA, etc. I was born in PA, in fact, and have been out in CO for the past 11 yrs. No doubt CO is great,,,great weather,,,wheelin' paradise. But I also miss the trees,,,,it's VERY dry out here. Plus land is very expensive up in the mtn's. I can get a pretty sweet piece of land back east for much less. The only thing I don't miss is the damn humidity,,, but I guess you can't have the trees w/out the damp.

I have some in-laws and buddies in northern VA so I'll definately look you up next time I'm out there !!
